weapons charges. sometimes there are clues, but to make a case, authorities need evidence that they often do not find. the orlando pulse nightclub shooter, omar mateen, had been on the f.b.i.'s terrorist watch list for ten months and was investigated but later removed from the list. in june he killed 49 people. cbs news consultant fran townsend says the system needs improvement. >> you want the terrorist watch list to be overinclusive, so if there is somebody you think may be but you don't have enough, you want it to alert other agencies to put more information in that might push you over the edge. >> reporter: since 2014, authorities have arrested 105 people in the u.s. scott, they say those people were plotting attacks, attempted to join isis, or provided money, equipment or weapons to that terror group. >> pelley: anna werner, thanks. today, leaders of congress dropped their gavels and grabbed a hammer to pound in the first

is an expense they want to avoid. >> we tested these three luggage tracking devices in this suitcase. it can track your phone, weigh itself and remotely lock. but it is small and we found the location feature to be hit and miss. this provided a list of places where our bag had been complete with a map, working with a smartphone connection. both devices require a service that consistently located our luggage on a map. it beats the hours alayna connelly spent waiting for her bag. >> definitely frustrating and annoying. >> the devices cost 40 to $80 plus the subscription fees. delta's new plan will happen in the coming months, the airline believes they will reduce lost luggage by 18 to 20%, which is around the range of 20,000 bags a year.
